H1B Registration Account Setup

Today, USCIS’s new H-1B cap registration system is open for employers to sign-up. If your company plans to sponsor H-1B workers for employment this year, then the employer must set up a registration account. To set up an account, go to and sign up as instructed. After you create the password and set up the security questions, go to the Account Type page and choose “H-1B Registrant” as your account type. The other choices are not for H-1Bs. Make a record of your backup code. Congratulations! Your H-1B cap registration account is set up! H-1B cap registration opens at noon ET on March 1, 2020 and closes at noon ET on March 20, 2020.  All candidates must be registered during this period to be entered in the annual H-1B cap selection lotteries. You can register the candidates with a $10 registration fee starting on March 1, 2020. If you need an attorney’s assistance in the registration process, we will be happy to assist you and we will provide further instructions. If the candidate is selected, the employer will have at least 90 days to submit the petition.  H1B Registration Account Setup
